Robot statistics correct as of its most recent competition
Shadow Zone Forever is a Heavyweight robot created by KodeBreaker of Team Covenant, and it is widely considered to be his most famous and successful. Previously featuring a body flipper hinged at the back, its most recent incarnation relies on lots and lots of ramming power.
Shadow Zone Forever won its first title in ARC: Carnage, where it defeated Don't Flick the Beans for the crown. Its second title came in League of Robotic Excellence, where it flipped over Cryoseism for a knockout at 2:49.
He returned for Ruination: The Contagion in a revised guise, as a tribute to the late Wayne Static, from whose album he got his name, Shadow Zone. He went 15-0 in an undefeated run and claimed a third title, the 3rd robot to do so behind Underall and Klarinette.
Shadow Zone Forever is one of the four original robots of Team Covenant, entered into ARC: Reckoning alongside Scarab, Perseus, and Fulcrum. It far outperformed its teammates, going 9-3 as it fell to ACAMS' Riot Control 40-5 in the HW semi-finals.
KodeBreaker fiercely implies Shadow Zone Forever is retired... but you never know. :V

- Shadow Zone Forever's ending name and predominantly green and black colour scheme, are based on the 1995 film Batman Forever. The name Shadow Zone itself comes from the 2003 album Shadow Zone by industrial metal artists Static-X. Strangely enough its theme "The Only" comes from the same album.
- Shadow Zone Forever enjoyed some moderate success on FRA Fanfic, defeating Thor and NSBFL 7 winner M.O.R.D. 2 to win its heat final of The Chevron Championship 2. Sadly, the tournament has not been and will never be finished.
- Shadow Zone Forever's initial design was inspired predominantly by Hammerhead 3 of Roaming Robots fame. Hammerhead 3 has a box flipper that pops out from not only the front but the top as well; however, it can also run inverted.
- v4 is, as far as KodeBreaker is concerned, the worst of any of the Shadow Zone bots. It was an attempt to combine a Wheely Big Cheese style flipper with Storm II ramming capability. It was scrapped very early on, but since it was fully rendered, it still counts as part of the SZF line.
